    Please note that as of April 11, 2018, we updated our pricing from 12c per km to 15c per km to reflect an increase in gas prices across Canada.

    Please note that as of December 12, 2018, we have updated our pricing strategy to let drivers edit the pricing for their trip even after they have booked passengers. We've also added the ability for drivers to edit the prices of segments of their trip, when they add stops to the trip.

    on return trips (say to a ski hill) are the prices listed on the app round trip or each way?

    Hi Kelsey, all prices on Poparide are one-way, and passengers will have to place two bookings if they want a return with you.

    It appears that since you've made it so that drivers can modify the price of trip segments separately, the prices for each segment no longer recalculate when you change the price of the whole trip.

    For example, if I am driving somewhere that the recommended seat price is 40$ with a segment costing 35$ and I increase the total trip seat price to 60$, the seat price of that segment remains 35$ so in order to change from your recommended trip price I'd have to change each segment price individually which is very frustrating. Is there something I'm doing wrong? or is this a glitch you guys need to fix?

    Hey Adam, that's correct, we do not suggest prices for segments based on the overall trip price; instead, we suggest prices based on the average price for each segment from the data we have, which prices trips at a market price for which people have historically booked.

    We've decided to take this approach as it's fair for passengers, and ensures drivers get bookings and do not overprice their trips. If you do wish to change the price upwards, we do allow you to change the prices for each segment of your trip.
